Snow Cream!

Here in Southwest Virginia, we just had a huge snow storm come through.

Typically, when it snows we will get around 2 inches.

Well, we got around 4-8 this time.

We have plenty of snow to go around and what better way to have fun with it than make snow cream!

Snow cream is something that my grandmother made for my Mom and her brother and has been passed down since.

It’s a really good sweet treat to make, especially if you get kids involved.

the recipe really has no measurements, you just have to eyeball everything depending to your tastes and how the snow is at the time,

To begin, go outside and get a large bowl of snow.Image

Then grab a can of sweetened condensed milk and pour a generous helping in.

Give it a stir, and see if you’ll need more sweetened condensed milk or snow.

You want to aim for a snow cone texture, so add more snow as needed.

After stirring in the sweetened condensed milk in the picture above, I still had to add in some more snow. so if you don’t like things too sweet, take it easy on the milk. Or, you could make it as sweet as you want and add more snow.

If you happened to not have any sweetened condensed milk and you didn’t want to risk your life going out in the snow and ice to get some, you can substitute it with: heavy cream, vanilla and sugar.
